>> it is official, hollywood's awards show season is in full swing and the best stars of tv and film came together last night. while some familiar faces did win, there were a few surprises, as well. >> american dream. >> and the golden globe goes to "american hustle." >> the star-studded throwback to the '70s was the night's biggest winner taking globes for best comedic film, best actress for amy adams and best supporting actress for jennifer lawrence. >> meanwhile, "12 years a slave" increased its buzz by winning best dramatic film. the night's two best actors awards went to leonardo dicaprio. >> never would've guessed i would win for best actor in a comedy. >> and an ecstatic matthew mcconaughey whose speech was anything but dazed and confused. >> all right. all right. all right. >> "gravity" is nominated for best film.
it's a story of how george clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age. >> and as expected tina fey and amy poehler brought their a-game. >> you want to live with your father? >> i can't. you won't tell me who he is! >> well, he's here tonight. so look around. >> poehler had to take a break from costume changes as well as bono's lap to accept the award for best actress in the comedy "parks and recreation." >> i never win so i can't believe i won. >> for fellow "snl" alum andy samberg also went home with a globe. >> i didn't prepare anything. >> his new series "brooklyn nine-nine" nabbed best comedic actor. and cult favorite "breaking bad" wrapped up the run with globes

passenger plane. according to the passengers, the southwest pilot got on the p.a. and said welcome to branson. turns out, they were several miles away. >> we came in sideways, like in the air and you could feel like something was wrong. but we thought it was maybe turbulence. >> tense moments sunday night when southwest flight 4013 left chicago's midway airport and was scheduled to stop in branson, missouri. instead the boeing 737 carrying 124 passengers and five crew members touched down at the clark-taney county airport, about eight miles away on a runway half the length of a landing strip in branson. >> we hit the runway really fast and stopped and all of a sudden you smelled rubber really strong. >> the plane stopped less than 500 feet from the end of the runway, just before a 30-foot drop to a highway. >> honestly, we owe our lives to the pilot. he stopped it on a runway where we would've ended up in the
freeway. >> no one was injured. and while there's no official explanation for why the plane landed at the wrong airport. experts say this type of mistake is rare. >> it is not at all common to have an airliner land at an airport other than its intended destination. >> reporter: late sunday, passengers were brought by bus to the correct airport. and southwest brought in another aircraft for those traveling on to other destinations. >> my goodness. it's a blessing that nobody got hurt or killed. >> now, southwest released a statement overnight saying a ground crew took care of customers with their baggage. and, quote, the landing was uneventful. and all customers and crew are safe. and i think that may have been an understatement. >> exactly right. kristen, we appreciate it. want to turn to politics now and the traffic jam scandals tied to aides of governor chris christie. he's been quiet since last week's news conference. but today, subpoenas could be issued to some of the people who were involved. nbc's kelly o'donnell is in new jersey at the capital of
trenton. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. democratic congressman says federal investigators are looking at how the christie administration spent money on a tv ad for tourism after hurricane sandy. i'm told that democrats have been pushing that because of the high priced contract was used because of the christie family. the bridge scandal and now this, christie is under fire. the new term doesn't begin until next week's second inaugural. but his future prospects are already uncertain. >> i think his career is never going to escape the gravitational force field of this traffic scandal. >> christie's political jam is tied to days of misery on the george washington bridge. sunday, top republicans backed up the governor.
>> he says he didn't know. i think it's pretty darn credible. he wouldn't make this blanket denial unless he -- it's not true. >> i think that he can now move on as long as another shoe doesn't drop. >> reporter: that confidence reflects the magnitude of republican star power christie had amassed in a party searching for a national leader. on "meet the press," reince priebus touted christie as too intelligent for the scandal. >> i think we've got a really smart person in chris christie who is a former u.s. attorney who understands what's out there. and thousands and thousands of documents have been revealed. and not one single link to chris christie has been found. >> but democratic state lawmakers say their investigation has barely begun. >> what we want to do is get all the documents first, then bring the people in one by one and ask them some questions. >> reporter: thursday, the governor was asked about resignation. his response, classic christie. >> that's a crazy question, ma'am.
i'm telling you, i had nothing to do with this. >> reporter: and christie is still scheduled to go to florida to fund raise this weekend. matt. >> kelly o'donnell on this story in trenton, kelly, thanks. meanwhile, folks in west virginia still dealing with that ban on tap water. natalie's here with that story and others. good morning to you and good morning, everyone. for hundreds of thousands of west virginia residents, they've gone for four days without clean tap water because of a chemical spill. nbc's anne thompson joins us from charleston, west virginia, with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. it is day five of that do not use order for tap water here in the charleston area. for the fifth day, noing bathing, no cooking and no tap water. they have 24 hours of the tests of the chemicals that went into
the supply last thursday is now at a safe letter. as a result, state offices are open today. schools for the most part remain closed, but janitorial staffs have been brought in to flush the water systems and clean the appliances that may have come in contact with the contaminated water and they hope to have students back in class tomorrow1 and the first zone to get the all clear will be downtown charleston. natalie? >> all right. thanks so much. world leaders paid tribute today to former israeli prime minister ariel sharon. sharon died saturday at the age ter spending eight years in a coma caused by a stroke. hundreds of international dignitaries attended the memorial service in jerusalem. vice president joe biden led the delegation. federal rail officials will install cameras on passenger trains nationwide in an effort
to improve passenger safety. under the plan, one set of cameras would keep an eye on the crew, another set would face the tracks. installation could begin this year. four people were killed and 67 injured when the commuter train derailed in new york last month. officials say the train's engineer dozed off shortly before that accident. and a daredevil's dangerous move getting lots of attention online. bmx rider matt olson pulled off a stunt at the 7th street bridge in ft. worth, texas. riding up and down the arches from beginning to end. olson says he only had one shot, certainly did and he nailed it. the pro stunt rider has entertained crowds at nba games and state fairs. he has, over the course of his career, suffered 13 concussions, three knee surgeries, ruptured a spleen and as you can see there by that grin, plenty of teeth knocked out seven times. that's a mug for sure. >> funny till he lands on your car on the bridge. >> no. no. >> happy it worked out okay. head back to los angeles now for a check of the weather from mr.

fire danger continuing right through into wednesday evening. and santa ana winds continue there. a lot of wet weather from the ohio river valley all the way down into the gulf coast. we're going to get you to your local forecast in the next 30 seconds.

political warfare in washington that i decry in the book. >> you say taken out of context. in reading the book, there are a lot of times where you level a very stark criticism at someone. and then a couple of sentences later, paragraphs later or pages later, you ease back on and say something. well, actually, i kind of agreed with that person. but you're a veteran. you served for eight presidents, actually, you've been in washington for a long time. you know it's the grenade you throw more than the pullback that's going to make the headlines. you had to know this would happen. >> well, i wasn't surprised by it. and the truth is, i think the book is very even handed. i don't vilify anybody. i make it clear, i have a lot of respect for both president bush and president obama. and just like on afghanistan, i think that, you know, what has been lost in the news media is that i actually agreed with virtually every decision president obama made. >> you agree with those decisions after saying you thought the president had lost his belief in the mission or his
passion in the mission. and by the way, it's not something you just say once in the book. by my count, you said it about eight times using terms like you expected more commitment to the cause, you doubted his support for the mission, and you said that he was skeptical if not outright convinced it would fail. so you made a pretty strong point in the book that he didn't believe in the mission. >> well, first of all, what gets conflated is the fact i said along the way that when he made those decisions, particularly for the afghan surge in november of 2009, i absolutely believe he was convinced it would work. i think his reservations grew -- and the way i outline it in the book is his reservations began to grow in the spring of 2010. but as late as december of 2010, he was still saying we're on the right track in afghanistan. so it was in our private conversations that he would
express these reservations about whether it was working. the decisions were right. i believe he believed it would work. let me say, matt, in a way it parallels president bush in 2006 when president bush began to have reservations about whether his strategy in iraq was working. >> but as he started to, perhaps, believe in the success of that mission less, you're still signing deployment orders for people to go over there. as secretary of defense, did you have a bad feeling about that? did you confront the president about his lack of passion for that mission at that time? >> i talked to his chief of staff rahm emanuel about the need for the president to take ownership of the war. and i did talk to the president about the need to speak out about the performance of the war and why it was important for the troops to be there. >> as this criticism is leveled
by you in the book at a time when some 40,000 u.s. troops are in harm's way, do you think that by calling him into question at this stage it is either dangerous or dishonorable? >> well, neither. i thinthe decisions have all been made with respect to afghanistan. i agree with those decisions. we're going to be out of there in december 2014. i agree with the decision for a residual force. i agreed with the president's deployment, the drawdowns. >> you don't think it undermines his credibility with the troops he's commander in chief of right now? >> no, i don't. >> let me move on to another subject. and this is one that's gotten a lot of attention. you recount a conversation between hillary clinton and the president talking about george bush's surge in iraq where you basically say that hillary told the president her opposition to the surge had been political because she was facing him in the iowa primary and the president conceded vaguely his opposition to the iraq surge had
also been political. that's a pretty strong statement. i think people have a right to know, what exactly did the president say? >> well, what i say in the book was that the president conceded a lot of opposition to the surge had been political. he never said that his opposition had been political. and, in fact, his opposition was consistent with his opposition to the war all along. the thing about hillary's comment that caught my attention was, first of all, i was on the other side of that issue in the spring of 2007. but it was such an anomaly. because in the whole time i served with secretary clinton, i never heard her as secretary of state discuss domestic politics in any way, shape or form as influencing her recommendations to the president or her views on issues -- >> perhaps her opposition was purely political because of the iowa primary. do you think that will or should hurt her in her political ambitions down the road? >> no. i think there's a difference
when you're in the senate and campaigning for office and when you have the responsibility of office. and when she had the responsibilities of office, as i say, i never heard her bring domestic politics into the issue. >> let me end on this. and this is something that got me. you talk about visiting cemeteries and front lines and the hospitals and seeing wounded soldiers. and you say you would wake up in the middle of the night, think of a wounded soldier you saw in the hospital. i would say, quote, and in my imagination, i would hold him to my chest to comfort him. silently in the night, i would weep for him. how did seeing the cost of war up close impact you, mr. secretary? >> it had a huge impact. as i write, i had served in government and cia and at the white house, the national security council for a long time. i'd been through a number of wars beginning with vietnam. but generally from antiseptic offices.
but seeing these people up close on the front lines in afghanistan and iraq, seeing them in the hospital, seeing their families had a huge impact on me. >> former secretary of defense, robert gates. mr. secretary, feel better. >> thanks a lot, matt. appreciate it. >> tell everybody the book is called "duty." let's send it out to carson in los angeles. >> well, thank you very much. thank you very much. big night last night here in l.a., obviously with the golden globes. one of the cool things, we had a vine 360 booth. and i know you all jumped in. the most tweeted about moment last night was when "breaking bad" won for best tv drama. the most tweeted about celebrities were jennifer lawrence, amy poehler and jared leto. and we'll tell you why jennifer lawrence was the one that stole the show last night. she was huge on social media and twitter. we will have more coming up from the golden globes in a little bit. back to you guys. >> all right. carson, thank you very much. coming up, we're going to talk to al. he certainly had an evening to
remember as he went one on one with the winners. and the sex scandal swirling around the president of france and why the first lady ended up in the hospital. but first, on a monday morning, this is "today" on nbc. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] eeny, meeny, miny, go. ♪ ♪ more adventures await in the new seven-passenger lexus gx. lease the 2014 gx 460 for $499 a month for 27 months. see your lexus dealer.

hamilton. but first, back to you, al, with a check of the weather. >> all right. as it's a monday, we like to take a looknd show you what's going on ahead for the weekend. we have a lot of wet weather along the eastern seaboard. we expect to see above normal temperatures from the great lakes, gulf coast, all the way into the west. and then as we look into the midweek period, you're going to see above normal temperatures in the northeast, snow around the great lakes, below normal temperatures into florida, above normal temperatures all the way out west. and then for the latter part of the week, it is going to be warm again out west, snow showers continue around the great lakes. we're looking for below normal temperatures, again, from florida all the way to the great lakes, little more normal in the 8:32. back to work monday. good morning. offshore winds are cranking at this point. you can see what happens. as those winds move from land to sea, they warm up along the way,

we'll get to gracie gold in a second. here's what happened. ashley wagner took fourth place in nationals but was named to the u.s. olympic team along with gracie gold and polina edmonds leaving aside the young lady who finished in third place. why? >> the national championships aren't the olympic trials. the national championships are national championships. the selection process goes on for a couple of years before the olympic games. the nationals are part of that process but not the process. when you look at ashley wagner, winning nationals twice, placing high enough in the world championships to allow three participants to go. she's already earned her spot on the olympic team. >> do you agree with the decision? >> i, you know, i -- i like to see somebody earn in their spot into the team but ashley kind of did that. i adore, i love her. it was the hardest thing i ever had to do was to give her our
traditional ice cream last night and my heart bleeds for her. i'm so sad for her. but ashley, the reason we have three women going to the olympics is because of ashley wagner. >> let's move on to gracie gold, 18 years old. what are her prospects realistically in sochi? >> i think she has a chance for a medal. you know, we are going to be in russia against a couple of strong russian skaters. but she's got everything. she's got everything you want in a ladies champion. the triple triple combination, great presence on thes ice, the new coaching relationship she has with frank carroll has given her another level of maturity. so she's doing everything right to put herself in a position to medal at sochi. >> polina edmonds is 15, she becomes the youngest winter olympian since tera lipinski in 1998. does she have the experience to win in sochi?
>> no, that's good. she's oblivious to the stage she's on. all she knows is she's doing everything she does every single day. she's going out and doing amazing technical difficulty. she's got beautiful presence on the ice, she's got, you know, a great maturity. she reminds me so much of oksana baeul. why would there by any other discussion? >> perfect. >> it is, it's awesome. >> let's go to ice dancing. not a surprise that they won their sixth consecutive u.s. championship. how are they looking for sochi? >> phenomenal. phenomenal. i've never seen anything like that. for the first time since like 1988 i covered the ice dance, i'm watching them skate and the stuff they're doing is physically impossible. and with the ease they're doing it is extraordinary. they're spectacular, they've won more world championships than anyone coming into this olympic games. and they train with their biggest competition.
so they know who they're competing against, they know them daily, and it's going to be a really tough fight because they are spectacular. >> yeah, those canadians are a tough team. the pairs competition top spot went to a team that a lot of people have great hopes for. >> you didn't want to say his name, did you? i knew it. >> good. >> you know, it's really wild. he's 6'4", okay. he's 6'4". you know a 6'4" skater? that's tough, if you go a little off kilter, it's like a falling tree. everybody get out of the way. they had a great skate. they fell on the quad sal. they deserve their spot. >> the problem with knowing you for 25 years, you know the look in my eyes when i'm clueless. >> yeah. i got that. >> all right, scott. thank you very much for selling me out on that.
we should mention that gracie gold will be here tomorrow on "today" for a live interview and a special performance. and the olympic competition begins on thursday, february 6th with the opening ceremony then the next night on friday, february 7th. and up next, savannah with the golden globe winning cast of "12 years of slave." and 8:45, where you'll find affordable red carpet look-a-likes. but first this is "today" on nbc. over 20 million kids everyday in our country lack access to healthy food.
for the first time american kids are slated to live a shorter life span than their parents. it's a problem that we can turn around and change. revolution foods is a company we started to provide access to healthy, affordable, kid-inspired, chef crafted food. we looked at what are the aspects of food that will help set up kids for success? making sure foods are made with high quality ingredients and prepared fresh everyday. our collaboration with citi has helped us really accelerate the expansion of our business in terms of how many communities we can serve. working with citi has also helped to fuel our innovation process and the speed at which we can bring new products into the grocery stores.
we are employing 1,000 people across 27 urban areas. and today, serve over 1 million meals a week. until every kid has built those life long eating habits, we'll keep working. and we are back now with more on the golden globes. not long after director steve mcqueen decided he wanted to make his next movie about slavery, he learned about a memoir called "12 years of slave." and last night, it walked away with the biggest prize of the evening. >> the golden globe award goes to -- "12 years of slave."
>> when "12 years of slave" won for best picture, it was the culmination of a story more than 150 years in the making. >> well, boy, how do you feel now? >> reporter: the movie is based on a memoir by solomon northop, a free man with a wife and children kidnapped and sold into slavery in 1841. >> my name's -- >> your name is platte. >> were there ever any doubts? were you worried that people weren't going to get this? >> no. because i think audience is interested in challenging narratives, challenging stories. >> reporter: when i sat down with the cast and director, we talked about how difficult it can be to watch solomon's marrowimarrow i harrowing journey. >> i found myself crying as the credits rolled. and i wondered what it was like for you to be part of that experience. >> the book is so moving,
engaging, this character, this extraordinary time in history. it's so powerful to me. it is a story that centers around the love this man has for his family. and how the need to reconnect with them can get him through the most extraordinary circumstances. >> solomon finds a way to escape, but millions of others, like a character named patsy never did. >> i make myself gag. >> patsy is lupita nyong's first hollywood role. >> did you ever imagine you'd get the part of a lifetime so early on and be part of something that's so special? >> when i first read the script, i understood something in my gut about this character that i didn't understand with my head. and that doesn't happen very often. >> michael fastbender plays one of new hollywood's most terrifying villains, the slave
owner edwin x. >> i brought her back just like -- >> i think as human beings, we're all made of the same stuff. so a character that does such despicable act like epps, i think people are quick to go, that person's evil. that's like a monster because they're afraid maybe there's elements of him inside themselves. >> this is the third time the actor has worked with director steve mcqueen in their previous collaborations, he played a man on a hunger strike and a sex addict. >> michael, why does steve keep putting you in these roles that cause you to do -- i don't know, some pretty stark and in some cases horrifying things? >> he enjoys punishing me. >> do you think you could get like a romantic comedy from him next time? >> yeah. absolutely. we'll do a musical next. no, i mean -- i'm not kidding. >> when oscar nominations are
announced later this week, the cast and director are favorites to make the list. but for them, the legacy of "12 years of slave" is bigger than any award. >> the reason why all four of us are sitting here because of a lost american hero. i'm so happy that we as a group -- as a unity of film makers got together to make this film to hold him up and say thank you. >> an amazing man and an amazing film. coming up next, from the red carpet right to your closet, we've got affordable look-a-likes for some of your favorite fashions. but first on monday morning, this is "today" on nbc.
♪ and we are back at 8:46. of course, we've been looking at the red carpet, seeing a lot of trend-setting styles. we know people are watching and wanting a similar look. you've been kind of scouring the racks. you predicted some of the trends we would see. and you've got some knockoffs or look-alikes, right? >> look-alikes, yeah. and you can wear them for every day because obviously everyone doesn't have a red carpet gown need every day. >> no, but you want to sometimes get inspired by the fashions we've seen. let's start with embellishments. who was wearing that look on the red carpet? >> we had people like mila kunis, zoe saldanha. and it's something that you have to make sure is the right proportion for your body. if it's too big, it's going to overwhelm you. even paula patton, it's not something you could wear for every day. we have two more affordable versions here. >> embellishment, i see a lot of beading here.
is that what you mean by that? >> yeah. and embellishment can be feathers, rocks, everything that you're almost adorning your dress with. these two are from river island and very reasonably priced, both under $100. >> another trend we saw was tea length. michelle doffry, would you call her a tea length dress? >> absolutely. there were a lot of tea lengths on the red carpet last night. it's the perfect thing to wear. it's not too formal as a gown, but it's not so casual as cocktail. >> i like it because it's sort of like you're not trying too, too hard. >> exactly. and i think some people think it's not as flattering as possible, but actually it's great. >> i think we've got a couple of looks over here of the tea length look. >> we do. >> it can be flattering. i feel like you've got to wear a heel with that, right? >> you don't have to. the key to it is so it's midshin. if you're very tall, you can have it in midshin cheer. it's where the leg gets thinner. and then also if you're shorter, maybe just below the knee.
>> okay. and another look, something you're calling unexpected black. what do you mean by that? who wore that last night? >> a lot of people in unexpected black. we had everyone from cate blanchett, amazing in the armani dress. and then we have emma roberts in the black, very cool dresses. and we have a couple here. these are unexpected in the fact we have a crop-top version here. and then also the black sequin. >> sequins with a little sass. i like that look. >> black at the end of the day is the most flattering color you can possibly wear. and it comes in every shape and size and works for every body type. >> finally, we've got liquid metal. who wore those looks last night? >> we saw quite a few people in liquid metal. naomi watts, one of my favorite looks of the night. and these looks here are more, you know, they're literally gold bullion, copper, the full length here which looks great. and also remember, it doesn't have to be gold or silver. >> yeah. >> we have olivia wilde in the green. >> i love that green. >> and this copper dress
represents that really well. it's the perfect length. it's not too long and could be worn for an easy cocktail party. >> so many fashions, great to copy, reinspired. thank you so much. do you think it was overall a good night for the red carpet? >> i thought it was great and i can't wait for the rest of the season. >> exactly. lots to look forward to. thank you. coming up next, james spader takes al on a tour of "the blacklis ♪
♪ one of the hit new shows on television, "the blacklist," has captivated many fans, including al. >> i have been telling everybody, they've got to see this show. it shot in our own backyard in new york city. i got to catch up with james spader, his co-star megan boone on location to find out what makes this show tick. >> and action. >> it's a fast-paced, action-packed thrill ride of a tv show. james spader plays raymond reddington, military man turned international criminal who inexplicably turns himself in after 20 years claiming he wants to help rid the world of evil. every week, he exposes a new member of what he calls the blacklist to an fbi task force.
>> talking about the ones you can't find because you don't know they exist. >> james, why did you want to get involved with this show? >> well, i was sort of reading what was out there and not finding anything that i was interested in. and all of a sudden this landed. i'm always looking for something that really is going to sustain in terms of unanswered questions. a show that can evolve and develop with time. >> and this is a show that, boy, you talk about not having questions answered. >> yeah. >> week after week. >> it really can go in any direction. >> the biggest question, why red will only work with one person. rookie fbi agent elizabeth keene. >> i speak only with elizabeth keene. >> do you know what the relationship is? >> yes. particulars and specifics of that relationship i don't know. but ultimately, that's a great deal of what the show is about. i think you just have to sort of allow an audience a glimpse
behind the curtain and shut it in their face. >> nothing special about me. >> oh, i think you're very special. >> megan boone stepped into this role, lizzy, young person. what's it like working with her? >> it's like reddington's relationship with elizabeth keene. you know, we both jumped on to a train and the train has left the station at full speed and it's on fire. >> we make a great team. >> when you found out that james spader was going to be red reddington, what did you think? >> well, when i found out james was on the project, it was a moment in my life that i was kind of bouncing off of walls and screaming and calling everyone i knew. and i loved. mom, james spader took the part. i'm going to be working opposite james spader. >> obviously i don't understand you. >> red reddington, dough you like this guy? >> i don't know if i'd be able to play him over such a long period and not find something
that i liked a lot about him. i have to live with him. >> yeah. >> and the things that i may not be comfortable with about him are things that i'm perfectly comfortable with the discomfort. >> if you were confronted with the things he is confronted with or make the choices he makes that you'd be able to do the things he does? >> i might walk away a lot more. >> i love this show. i love him in it. and tomorrow, we're going to get a tour of the war room and go out to the set with some of the other great cast members. it's a terrific show and terrific cast. >> if you want to catch "the blacklist" airs tonight 10:00/9:00 central. and tonight, al parties. >> i'm going all party, all the time -- last night at the golden globes. >> did you have a good time? >> oh, let me tell you, they're going to be talking about this
for days. >> we're going to wrap it here in l.a. but al's giving you a tease to stay tuned. >> that's a tease all you're watching "today in the day." >> good morning. it's 8:56. i'm terry mcsweeney. a san jose teenager will represent team usa in sochi. the 15-year-old was just named to the women's figure skating team. she's a sophomore in san jose and will be the first female figure skater from the bay area to compete in the olympics since kristi yamaguchi won gold back in 1992. that was before christina was
born, right? >> i'm going to plead the fifth. good morning. we sure are happy to see a local girl in that major competition. right here in san jose, about 68 degrees along the peninsula. warm conditions today. and we keep those numbers unseasonably warm all week long. slight chance for rain saturday to sunday.
from nbc news, this is "today's take" with al roker, natalie morales and willie geist live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> welcome to "today" on this monday morning, this january 13th, 2014. the morning after the golden globes. i'm willie geist along wi natalie morales. al just now rolling in from the golden globe parties. he's in l.a. this morning where he's been hanging with the beautiful people. you chief among them, of course. >> you're so beautiful, al. >> well, yeah, that and savannah. savannah, one of the beautiful people. >> no question. >> did you see her dress last night? >> stunning. i loved it. >> she looked incredible. >> tamron, as well. and matt looking very dapper. >> i loved yours.
>> well, i had people call it deep purple, a little throwback to the '60s there, eggplant, and obejene. >> so you are hanging out with some heavy weights in hollywood. in fact, you documented with a number of selfies i was following you watching it. >> like a selfie palooza. >> on the one hand, i felt kind of geeky doing it, but it's one of those moments. amy adams, you know, of course, winning best actress in a musical or comedy for "american hustle," and then the spectacularly beautiful keri washington in that beautiful pale green. and, of course, she's expecting. in fact, she said she had the best date with her because she literally was carrying her date along. a guy we saw a little earlier in the -- toward the end of the 8:00 hour, james spader who was
nominated for best -- >> love spader. >> -- actor in a tv drama. he's just so -- and leo. how do you not take a picture with leonardo dicaprio? come on. and, i think, one of the -- if not the most stunning woman on the red carpet yesterday, it was a toss-up, i believe between her and cate blanchett was lupita nn nyong. >> i said immediately, al nailed this one. you predicted it in the "usa today" poll. i was like, al got it. she looked unbelievably stunning. so statuesque and gorgeous. >> and, of course, you know, everybody was expecting -- you know, after their stint last year, tina fey and amy poehler, could they top what they did last year? and, man, did they knock it out of the park? check it out. >> hosting the golden globes for
the second time. thank you. thank you. >> thank you. >> because this is hollywood and if something kind of works, they'll keep doing it until everybody hates it. >> on any other night in any other room, you'd be a big deal. but tonight you're basically a garbage person. >> gravity is nominated for best film. it's the story of how george clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age. meryl streep so brilliant in "august: osage county," proving there's still great parts in hollywood for meryl streep's over 60. >> i wanted more of them. i felt like the show needed more amy, more tina. >> you know, you are absolutely correct.
and the interesting thing, you know, other people were ripping off their jokes. matt damon came up, he said, hi, i'm your garbage man who forgot his glasses. and the bit they did, you know, where tina -- i should say amy played tina's child from an earlier relationship. and trying to figure out. she said one of you out there is this child's father. and amy goes up -- >> and ends on harvey weinstein. >> and it was so many great moments. >> if you look at the night "snl" had, andy samberg won best actor in a comedy. got jimmy up there, seth up there and lorne michaels sitting with cut aways, yes. >> you know he's thinking, i am is the god of comedy. >> he sure is.
>> if i -- if i put my hand on you, you will be a star. and you know what, he's got the touch. >> golden touch. >> a lot of times with andy samberg, you'll see this fake surprise for actors and actresses, he was genuinely stunned to get up there. he was not prepared. i don't think anyone saw that coming, least of all him, apparently. >> you know what, there were a number of people who were talking about this show about six weeks ago. and that it was building. and that this was the one -- if there was going to be a dark horse in the comedy category, it was going to be brooklyn 99. and fox, you know fox believed in it because it's going to get that post super bowl slot. so talk about momentum. >> well, it's a new show and it sprung on people. good for andy samberg, good for "snl." you were looking at the highlights. >> some of the fashions, yeah, as any girl and guys check them out, as well. >> sure. >> i loved -- we already talked about lupita, i thought she was
fantastic. i think the pregnant stars looked amazing as we saw keri washington and olivia wilde looked stunning. >> looks great. >> amazing, amazing. she looks like olivia pope pregnant. >> drew barrymore pregnant, as well. >> i loved margo robby, the australian actress from "wolf of wall street." this was old hollywood glam and cate blanchett for me wins overall for the night. and that cut in the back when you see her turn around, amazing. >> i agree with both of you about lupita, she was one as we watched the pre-show. she's such a new face, a lot of people don't know who she was. a lot of people were gasping. she's stunningly beautiful and her dress was great. i thought she was the run away star of the night. >> and you know what, guys. a lot of the guys really stepped up. there was a lot of color.
matthew mcconaughey looked terrific. there were a lot of great tuxedos out there on the red carpet. >> you want to go there? paula patton. check it out. >> not a favorite look of mine is paula patton. >> no? >> and i think a lot of people took to twitter on this one. a lot of people saying it looks like this is what happens when i try to fold a fitted sheet is what somebody tweeted. another person said paula patton's dress is the real polar vortex. >> yes. >> i think the dress was a little overwhelming for her. she's so beautiful and has an incredible physique that you add the whole thing that was going on here. what is that thing going on here? >> i don't know what that was. but my view is you do so many of these shows, take a shot at something. and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. >> for the length of time it would take somebody to get on the stage, she could take a nap. >> she looks great. she's always beautiful, though.
>> she does. >> you imagine the winners getting the stage. as people watch this show and follow it on twitter. i don't know if the seating chart was such or the organization of the room, it took brian cranston. >> you knew the guy was going to win. >> everybody predicted that. >> 48 agonizing seconds for him to get up there. >> seems like they put all the winners in the back. >> well, i guess -- >> andy samberg is having to weave his way through people and make his way up the stage. i mean, it just took an eternity. >> well, the deal is, they put tv -- you've got your leonardo dicaprios and others up front. >> she was in the back. >> she was in the back. >> tom hanks was in the back. >> no? hanks was in the back? >> yes. look at the tape when he came up. when he came up to do the co-hosting thing, the
presenting, it took him a little while to get up. >> no one puts hanks-y in the corner. buzz feed tweeted out a map and said this is the official plan the winner's pass to the stage. >> took them longer with the camera following them than the actual acceptance speeches. they were wrapping them up before they made it to the stage. >> the music started and continued. >> just getting on the stage, you're wrapping me already. >> i know you've got a lot more. we're going behind the scenes with al. he was on all the parties last night coming up in a few minutes, but first, a little look at the weather. >> yeah. and, in fact, the big weather story is out here in southern california, guys. let's take a look and show you. we are talking about santa ana winds playing a big, big weather role here. from santa barbara all the way to san diego, we've got high wind warnings, red flag warnings. you add to that the fact that this is one of the driest seasons on record for much of
california, not just southern california. so we are going to have a high fire danger this week. why? well, high pressure's going to be dominating, moving into the great basin. it's a clockwise flow of air around this. it brings in very dry air from inland, rises up and over the mountains and down again. so you get that friction as the wind comes along the mountains, that heats the air up even more, dries it out even more, there's low humidity, high winds, the vegetation is dried out and so you've got a fire danger stretching all along southern california. and this fire danger, higher fire danger exists right on through wednesday morning. that's what's go yeah, pretty unusual to be talking about fire danger in january, but that's the case here in the bay area as well, with a fire weather watch in place. for the elevations above 500 feet in the north bay, until 10:00 a.m. tomorrow. temperatures today show you what
offshore flow does in the bay area. about five to ten degrees above average. look at where we're headed. we're going to keep that climb going. this is for santa cruz, up to 80 degrees. by thursday, 76 degrees. hope you have a fantastic day. >> guys, that's your latest weather. >> thanks. we'll see you in a minute. by the way, with valentine's day a couple of weeks away, time for another contest. if you have a healthy but delicious chocolate recipe worthy of a cook-off, we want to hear from you, go to today.com to enter. if you're one of the best, you'll be here with us. >> keeping it healthy. coming up next, the biggest surprise at the golden globes from the show stoppers on the red carpet to one of the most talked about and awkward moments on stage. we are live from los angeles on stage. we atrying to stay fitngeles but miss real pleasure? the pleasure you crave just got real.

again, emma thompson kicking up her heels. and fashion has a new it girl. everybody talking this morning. here with the hits and misses from the red carpet to the stage, jason kennedy. good to see you guys. >> team no sleep. >> that's it. we are on fumes, baby. so anything could happen. >> that's right. it's fun. >> let's start off, tina and amy. last year, they did a terrific job. this year, i think everybody's in agreement. they knocked it out of the park. >> i talked to amy after on our live post show. and she said she was worried about the sophomore slump, screwing it up the second time. are you kidding me? they hit it out of the park. they were incredible. and i told her, she looked really good as a boy. it was a great, great scene right there. >> it's a little disturbing, but really good. >> it was hilarious. >> in fact, i think if anything, people felt they wanted more tina and amy. >> and amy won for "parks and recreation." she said her highlight of the night was making out with bono.
>> who doesn't want to make out with bono? honestly. all right. so everybody's talking about, i think, jacqueline bisset's speech. it took her 48 seconds to get up on the stage, and then the speech. >> so she won for supporting actress in a mini series. finally gets up there. she was quiet, didn't say anything, then she cursed and then the music tried to play her off the stage. but she really didn't pick up any momentum. so i went on twitter and everybody thought she was a little inebriated. did she mention anything? was she okay? >> she says i'm full of a lot of "p" and vinegar. she said i'm british and i said, okay, well, i guess that covers it. >> it was the awkward moment of the night. >> yeah. >> and then some surprising wins last night. >> i wasn't really surprised, though, before all of that that "breaking bad" won best drama. i was surprised in the comedy category "brooklyn 99," the
freshman series on fox, andy samberg. we talked to andy afterward, he was stunned, shocked. i don't think anybody in that cast thought they were going to win last night. and then on the film side, i wasn't shocked at "12 years of slave" won for the big, big award. but i was a little surprised that lupita didn't win. i thought maybe michael fastbender could get it. but at least they got best drama. that's what you go there for. >> let's face it, it was really neck and neck with the cast from "american hustle" and "12 years." >> it was. >> and emma thompson, a lot of people say she might have stolen the show. >> it was the moment of the night. she didn't win for saving mr. banks, but she gets up there to present. she's got her martini, she chucks the things right behind her back and moves on. and this is why i love the globes because everybody's having a good time. they've had a few drinks, they don't know what's going to happen. the drinks play a major factor
at the globes. and she just kind of was out of her shell there, i loved it. >> let's get to the fashion. >> yeah. >> a lot of individuality out there. >> so much diversity. and that is what made it so fun. you didn't know what to expect from everyone. but i thought lupita literally shut down the red carpet. she was wearing a red ralph lauren dress with a built in cape. she looked flawless. >> yeah. >> and her hair was so different. her hair stylist blew it out. she had a flat top and he made a deep side part. >> she's a fashionista. >> she is. >> and we had this thing with "usa today." and they asked who would make the biggest splash and i had said her. >> lupita all day. >> and margo robby. >> she was wearing a stunning gucci dress. cream and it was embellished. and also the waistline and she had this really sexy slit.

[ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily
and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i've got three important reasons to up my game with eliquis.
